Mounting DVD_Rom In Linux ( VMWare Virtual Machine)


I have installed a Linux Virtual Machine in VMWare. I want to mount dvd-rom in linux. As i put a Linux dvd in my rom. CD/DVD rom icon disappears from Linux System Properties.

Also when i check the mounted points with df -h command. it didnt shows any cd/dvd rom mount point.

Please tell how to mount dvd-rom in Linux (running in VMware).

Note: I have set the my Phyical Drive in Virtual Machine Setting as CD-Rom Drive.


Thnx
